ND Energy offers competitive fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students to conduct energy-related research at Notre Dame. These fellowships support new advancements in energy technologies, while broadening the educational experiences for students receiving these awards.
Student Scholars are selected annually through a competitive application process. Awards are used to support student stipends, research supplies, or travel for students to present their research projects at a national conference or meeting. These programs are made possible through the generosity of Notre Dame alumni who support energy research and education at Notre Dame.
